Luckily I have the 2 1/4" strip die for my AccuQuilt cutter. I just laid them out, stacked a few strips high, and ran it through.

Hello my friend!
I'm motoring right along with my St. Patrick's Day T-Shirt quilt. I took it off the frame a couple days ago and started to think about a binding. Luckily I remembered that I way over-cut this Kona Parrot green fabric into 2 1/2" strips. I don't bind at 2 1/2" - I prefer a 2 1/4" - but I really didn't relish the idea of cutting 1/4" off all the strips!
Perfect and so fast! So little waste. Someone actually seemed surprised to find out I still die-cut a while back LOL! I asked them - still rotary cut? They rolled their eyes at me - but seriously? Why would I pick up a rotary cutter when I own the die and I have a bunch of strips to cut?
After cutting and preparing the binding I love using my Binding Babies to wind it and dispense the binding. My favourites are always the limited edition ones that I get directly from the company - like my cute little vampire. I have a bunch of these so I can leave my favourite colours prewound and beautifully displayed ;-)
Next up - I think I'll start a new Leaders and Enders project that I've been thinking about for a while - orange and grey.
I know - not everyone's cup of tea but I adore orange and grey together. I'm thinking of an alternating orange and grey 16-patch and maybe a snowball or a star sashing with black points to make it into a fall sort of Halloween quilt.
I'm honestly looking forward to getting back to straight up good-old 2" squares and no HSTs!
What do you think? Grey and orange - yes or nay?
